Sri Lankans should build their nation on their own because no other country will help us in this endeavor, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.
He said this at the opening of a new building at Rajasinghe MMV in Ruwanwella.
“We will have to build our country by ourselves. No other country will do it for us. Sri Lanka should take countries such as China and Korea which built their nations on their own. Talking of the past and embracing extremism will not help the country in anyway,” the Prime Minister said.
He said Sri Lanka is gradually raising from the aftermath of the Easter Sunday attacks and was the only nation to do so in such a short space of time.
“None of us are aware of the technology that may emerge by 2050. Therefore Sri Lanka should focus on this situation and our intention is to build an economy which is suitable for the 21st century,” the Prime Minister said.
He said the government intended to narrow the gap between rural and urban areas when it came to infrastructure facilities. (Yohan Perera)
